How do I choose my Primary bank account?

If you have linked more than one bank account to your PayPal account, you can choose one of these accounts as ‘primary’. The bank account you define as primary is the first account we’ll offer you when you make a withdrawal from your PayPal account.
If you had already linked and confirmed a bank account in the U.S., you can also choose your U.S bank account as primary. A U.S. primary bank account will be:

  • The first account we’ll offer you when you withdraw money from your PayPal account.
  • The second payment method we’ll offer you when you make a payment (your PayPal balance is always the first one).

Here’s how you can choose a primary bank account:

  1. Go to Wallet.
  2. Select the bank account you would like to make primary.
  3. Click Make primary.
